Welcome to the Carolina Foothills Locally Grown weblog. Mainly this is a collection of e-mails that we send out each week to kick off the market, but also tells the tale of our little market.
Growers/producers may list their available products at any time now. To be available for each weeks market they must be posted no later than 8:00pm on Friday.
The site will be opened for shopping Friday evening at 9:00pm and remain open for shopping until 4 pm Monday afternoon.
Growers will drop-off their orders from 3:30 to 4:00 pm Tuesday & Wednesday. Customers can pick-up their products from 4:30 to 6:30 pm Tuesday and Wednesday (depending on pick up site).
Customers and growers please double check your drop-off and pick-up locations. Customers, you can specify your pick-up location when you order.
Happy Friday! Market Opens Today!!
Dear Friends of Farmers,
A few changes are expected as circumstance would have it. Our sweet market is needing another market manager to help me with logistics and such. If you have a few hours on Tuesday or Wednesday let me know. If i could be two places at once …..you get the picture. It is very satisfying getting fresh farm food to our community.
It’s that time of year when Farmers Markets start popping up. Here’s our areas :
Six Mile Farm Depot
Opens Thursday May 15th. 4-7pm
Patrick Square Market

Between the on- line farmers market and the mid-week and weekend markets you can be providing you and your family with fresh locally grown food all week! Be mindful though. Look for farms that use no chemicals on their land or food. Even chemical fertilizers are a No No!!! Support your Sustainable Farmers providing clean food !
